Eleventh  Year
COAL AREAS
VERY LARGE
Immense Tract on the Elk
River Where   Coal
Abounds.
A District   Rich   In   Black
Diamonds Yet Unexplored.
of the Crow's Nost Push branch follows Michel creek to the Kile river
and (Iowd thc Elk valley to Elko.
The valley of the Elk river along
whioh with its tributaries from the
east is situated most of the coal fields
of the Crow's Nest I'ubs is undoubtedly destined to be one of thu busiest
portions of British Columbia within
thu present decade. Thc river is about
200 miles in length from its rise in
the heart of the main range of the
Rockies to where it empties into the
Kootenay r;ver near the town of Elko.
Tbe main coal deposits opened up so
far aiu un Coal creek, Michel creek
and Morrissey creek. Besides these
deposits thore are in the coal reserve
wbich stretches for Sfty miles north
of the Michol creek collieries, a number of places where tho coal comes to
the surface and from tho indications
it is believed that the whole iu one vast
ooal bed. This reserve is bounded on
tbe west by Elk river, and on the east
by tbe main range of the Rockies,
Coal croppings are found in thc foot
hills running north and south. The
formation is almost entirely hlack
slate, the foothills being out in a
number of places by narrow gorges
cut hy streams, and along wliioh tbe
ooal croppings are seen. Besides tnese
a quantity uf drift ooal is to bo found
in the river an steams flowing into it.
From Michel creek to Elko the valley ol the Elk is narrow and heavily
timbered, the coal being found on tbe
branch streams same dista nee from
tbe main river. Worth of Michel
creek, however, the valloy widons out
in some plaoes being from five to
seveu miles wide, with beautiful
prairie stretohes on which wild hay
grows luxuriantly. Eighteen miles
np are situated hot sulphur springs,
owned by Nelson parties. From
Michel to the springs a wagon road
has been run, but north of this the
only means cf travel is by an old and
only occasionally used Indian trai'.
The scenery on the upper valley is
beautiful in the extreme, the lofty
mountains, lightly timbered in the
lower portions and snow clad at the
summits, contrasting with the wide
grassy plains and park stretches. With
the opening up of tbe coal fields
whioh is going on rapidly and which
already supports a population of
several thousands, this valley will
rapidly become a populous centre.
Tbe climate is Bligbtly colder than
that of West Kootenay but considerably diier.
The amount of coal contained in
this vast expanse is, of course, beyond
computation. The river itself is a
swift mountain torrent, abounding in
rapids as it tears along over a
gravelly bed. Thore is but oue waterfall in its course of any consequence,
except at the head waters. Tbis
waterfall is close to Elko, and will
provide good water power. The coal
varies in ita quality and it is believed
that the farther up the valley of the
river that it is found the harder
the coal is. The land on the western
side is not open for pre-emption or
sale, the government reserve covering
these rights, but on the western side
most of it has already been taken up
by settlers. The timber on this pait
of the valley is not of much value,
except in patches along the mountains
being too scattered for commercial
value. Thirty miles uhove Michel
creek, however, the timber is solid
aud when the valley is opened up that
lar it will probably prove commercially valuable.
At Michel, where the Crow's Nest
Coal company is opening up a mine
and has built a large number of coke
ovens quite a lively town has sprung
into existence. The mine is three
miles from thc junotion of the Michel
and Elk. There are two quarries
situated at Michel from which limestone is tsken to build tbe ovens.
Twelve miles east of Michel are
situated lakes at the summit of the
pass, and a few miles east of this
again the ooal croppings commence, the
ooal area on this side of the main
range alsu being extensive.     The line
Fiom tliosu coul lands are to be {
selected the 50,000 aorosbythe Dominion government. In the present workings of the Crow's Nest Coal oompany
on Miohel, Morrissuy and Coal creeks
alone, huwevcr, thcie is enough coal
to supply all the demands that can be
put in for some time to como from all
possible bouiccs. Tbe region is conceded by experts to contain probably
the largest deposits of coal in tbe
world, and further exploration will
likely show that all varieties of ooal
are to be met with in the various
localities, as the fields extend from
near the International boardary on
tbe south for nearly 200 miles to the
north.

Stand.
Newfoundland  Premier   Approves Continuing the
Modus Vivendi.
Toronto, Feb. 26.���A big deputation
of tho Dominion Alliance waited on
Premier Ross today to pretest against
the provisions of prohibition referendum. Rev. Dr. Mackay, said the
alliance wanted a fair referendum,
that is,a majority of the vote cast and
the taking of the vote nt the time of
municipal elections. The alliance was
against a referendum. In reply,
Premier Ross defended tbe referendum. As to the vote the government.
had decided that three out of evory
eight on the list must voto in favor of
prohibition. Thut was fair and so far
as the government would go. If the
prohibitionists could not get that vote,
they did not deserve to be successful.
As to the date,the premier said as thu
Methodist conference would be iu session on Oetober 14th, that date would
be abandoned. The vote could not be
taken on same day as general elections, but the government would see
about takiug ths vote on the date of
the muniaipal elections.

Referring to the proposed colonial
contributions to the navy, Arnold
Foster, secretary to thc admiralty, in
the House of Commons, said that advantage would certainly be taken of
the oppotunity to elicit the views of
[he representatives of colonies attending the approaob ing coronation. The
chancellor of the Exchequer, Hicks-
Beach, says the government did not
propose to approach tbe colonies as
beggars, bnt simply would endeavor
tu ascertain whether the oolonies
desired to share the burJens of the
empire.
A bill was introduced in the legislature today giving Ontario fonr new
members.

New York, Feb. 26.���Prince nenry,
of Prussia,dined tonight with 1,000 of
the men who make American newspapers. He was the special guest of
Herman Rider, proprieter uf the New
York Staats Zeitung, who gathered at
his table a majority uf tlie leading
figures in American journalism.
Tho dinner wns given in tho handsome ball room uf the Waldorf Astoria
hotel, but that immense apartment
was uot large enuugh lo accommodate
the number of guests and the gallery
wus also used. Tho two rooms were
splendidly decorated. Mr. Ridder and
tho special guests sat at an elevated
table above which were American ana
German Hags. Tbe staves were crossed
and the banner drapedd, and reached
out like the wings of a huge butterfly. Above them was a design in in-
cansdescent lights, which as the
prince took his seat, flashed into the
Prussian eagle above him on the
southern cull and thu power was also
increased in every one of thu 2,500 incandescent lights that burned in the
room. From the boxes hung clinging
vines uLd set into the ledges were
hundreds of palms. Each table
carried buquets of American neauty
roses, around which were cundelabru
shaded in red. As the diners took
their places, tho ladies uf maDy of the
party appeared in tbe boxes v;hicli aro
around the walls of the room.
Prince Hunry, at'.ended by the
members of his suite, drove to tlie
hotel under escort of cavalry and
mounted police and tho demonstration
in thu streets leading to the hotel was
the most cordial of any that has so far
marked his appearance in public.
Great crowds lined the way und pressed against the police gnards that bad
been thrown around the 33rd street
entrance to the hotel. They cheered
when tbe prince came in sight and he
frequently raised his hand to his cap
in acknowledgement of the demonstrations.
The prinoe reached the hotel at 8.80
o'clock and was received by Mr. Kidder. They shook hands warmly and
while they paused for a brief talk, the
members of the suite and the delegates
ot President Roosevelt filed up to the
banquet ball. The band played the
American national anthem as the
uniformed staff entered and tho crowd
of guests arose. There was a great
cheer as the prince appeared and
another when he took his place at the
side of Mr. Rider at the special table.
Mr. Rider, aB the toastruaster,
called upon Bishop Potter, who
offered a brief grace. A small army
of waiters quickly filled the aislei
between the tables and with an order
that was remarkable in such a large
gathering, the banquet began. As the
evening proceeded, hundreds of handsomely gowned women filled the boxes
above thu dining hull. An orchestra
high up in the second tier of boxes
played popular national music and
when the tune caught the funcy of the
crowd, they sang It.
Statuettes of Prince Henry were
distributed as souvoniors. At 10.25
o'olock Mr. Ridder, tapping for attention with his gavel, proposed the
health of the President of the United
States and tbo Kaiser, and called upon
Whitelaw Reid to respond. Mr. Ridder said: "Your Royal Highness and
(lentlemea, I have the pleasure and
the honor of offering the health of the
President of the United States and tho
German Emperor which 1 ask you to
rise and drink and I couple with this
sentiment, the name of the Hon.
Whitelaw Reid, the distinguished
editor of the Now Yoik Tribune."
Mr. Roio followed and Prince
Henry wus then introduced. As he
stood up the crowd burst into song
"Hoeh Soller Leben Mai Hoch."
After thut they sang"For He's a Jolly
Good Fellow." llefore beginning his
speech, tlie prince said : "This is the
largest interview 1 ever had."
Prince Henry's speech at   thc   press
dinner was as follows:
Mr. Toastmaster, and Gentlemen���I
am fully aware of tbo fact that I am
tho guest and in tbj presence of the
representatives of the press of tve
United States and !n particular the;
guest of the New York Staats Zeitung,
both ol which 1 wish to thank for th e
kind invitation and reception I huve
met with tonight.
Before entering intu details, 1 should
like all of you to understand that 1
consider this meeting, though it may
be looked upon ns official, as a private
one und thnt it is my wish that none
of you will taku advuntuge of what iB
said or spoken after leaving tbis
table.
Undoubtedly the press of our day is
a factor, If not a power which may
not bu neglected ano which I should
like tu compare with ever so many
submarine mines which blow up in
many cases in the most unexpected
manner. But your own naval history
teaches us not to mind mines should
they ever be in our way. Tho language used on this memorable ocoasiou
was stronger than ever I would vent
uru to reproduce here tonight. 1 need
only mention the name of Farragut.
Another comparison might be more to
your taste, gentlemen, and is in fact
more complimentary. It is ono which
His Majes'y, the Emperor, used
befoie I left. He snid, ''You will meet
many members of the press und I
wish you, therefore, to keep in mind
thut the pressmen in tbe United States
rank almost with my generals In command."
It will interest you, I ko\vn,to learn
something about the nature of my
mission tu thiB country. The facts are
as follows: His m ajesty.tlie emperor,
has minutely studied the recent and
rapid devlopment of thu United States
and his majesty ia well aware of the
fact that yours is a fast moving
nation. His sending me to this
country may, therefore, be looked
upon as an act ot friendship und
courtesy with the one desiru of promoting friendlier relations between
Germany and the United States.
Should you be willing to grusp a pro-
fered hand, yon will find such a one
on thu other side of the Atlantic
ocean.
At the end of thc speech, the prince
was heartily applauded. Mr. Ridder
at this point introduced Charles
Emory Smith, saying that Mr. Smith
had been a minister of state, a great
editor, and is known as the silver
tongned orator of the press ot America.
Following Mr. Smith, came Charles
W. Knipp, he being introduced in a
few appropriate words by Mr. Ridder.
Whon the dinner was over the prince
left accompanied by his suite.
He was heartily cheered as he
went   out   of     the     banquet     room.
Tlie following cablegram was sent
by the newspapermen assembled at
the press banquet to^ Prince Honry:
To the German Emperor,���The editors
of the Unitod States, 1,000 in number,
at u banuet in honor of your brother,
send you cordial greetings and all
good wishes tor a long and prosperous reign. We hail the presenoe of
Prince Henry in this country as an
omen of even closer ties of amity and
heartily reciprocate the splendid and
repeated overtures of lriendship you
have been graoiouly pleased tu extend.
(Sgd.) Melville E. Stone, secretary.
A NEW LIBERAL LEAGUE.
London, Feb. 20.���Lord Rosebery
has authorized the formation of a new
Liberal league with himself as president, and H. N. Asquith, Sir Harry
Fowler and Sir Edward Grey as vice
presidents, to act, as ii ib authoritatively announced, in conjunction with
the rest of tbe Liberal opposition on
the lines of thc policy expressed in
Lord Roseberv's speech at Chesterfield.
The rather ambiguous announcement
ls probably Lord Ruaebery's first practical move tu test tbo strength of hiB
following among thc Liberals.

(SPECIAL TO THE VIMII.)
Victoria, Fob. 26.��� Thu air is full
of intrigue today. The government is
understood to be anxious to form a
coalition with the opposition, but the
caucus of ilie lattei held lust evening,
it is understood, was unfavorable to
these advances. On the other hand
Martin bas drafted a redistribution
bill whioh hu has submitted to the
government and asked that it be
passed. It ls stated that the lerjis of
this bill are not acceptablu to somo o
the government's supporters, who aiu
anxiuus tu be relieved of the necessity
of supporting it. This bill will likely
provide for tbe withdrawal of one
member Irom Victoria, another from
Esquimalt, and granting one tu tho
Boundary district, the total additioa
to the present representation being
uno, making a house of 39. Dunsmuir may lesign, if negotiations with
the opposition fail and will ask to
appeal to the country but it is believed if he did so, that the governor
would not grant it, seeing he bas failed to fill the vacant purtfolio. The
opposition muinbers claim they can
form a strung government in such an
event as soveral of Dunsmuir's present
suppurteis would rather support toern
than Martin.

(SPECIAL TU THE MINER.)
Kaslo, Feb. 26.���The fourth annual
meeting of tho Associated Hoards of
Trade ot Eastern Kritish Columbia,
met heie tonight with tl. S. Galloway,
of Greenwood, president, in the chair,
the secretary, H. W. C. Jackson, of
Rossland, also being present. Twenty-
four delegates were seated from the
following different boards: Nelson,
Kaslo, Rossland, Muyie.Grand ForHs,
Cascade, Trail, Greenwood, Phoenix,
and Fernie. The election of officers
resulted in choice of G. O. Buchanan,
of Kaslo, as president for the ensuing
jear with H. W, C. Jackson, of Rossland, secretary-treasurer re-elected.
The president in his address.referred
to the great good whioh must result
from the appointment of Senator
Templeman to a seat in tbe cnbinet,
und congratulated those whose efforts
resulted in securing thc granting of a
bonus by the Dominion government
for the refining of lead ores. His plea
for "free trade" in railway construction was specially strong and he suggested thu appointment of delegates
to proceed to Victoria to impress upon
the legislature the necessity of removing any ubstuctions to railway building by any persons or corporations
willing to invest capital in opening
new districts. He also referred to tho
disposal of thu coal bearing lands.
FLOODS ON LONG ISLAND.

houses just east of Wostbury were in
the midst of a great lake of two or
three acres in extent and several feet

ANOTHER ''ROORBACU."
One of the yarns of the campaign ot
misrepresentation which tbe C.P.R. is
directing is that as soon as the Crow's
Nest Southern railway is completed
the coal from the Crow's Nest measures will be hauled to the United
States Bnd turned into coke there.
Inquiry has developed that the
Crow's Nest Southern railway had
no snch intention, and never even
considered so foolish a move. lJesides
being impolitic it would be idiotic.
It takes nearly two tons of coal to
make one ton of coke, and where
would there be any sense on the part
of anyone with a grain, of sense in
paying for the haulage oi two tons of
ooal when the same result eoold be
secured by transporting one ton of
coke. Coal can be turned into coke
just as cheaply at the ovens in the
Crow's Nest Pass as it can at any
point on the line ol the Great Northern in Idaho or Montana. It is atiout
as ingenious a scheme as that which
used to be practised by Dutch farmers
who put wheat on one side of a pack
horse and a stone oa tbe other when
they took grist to the mill.
This roorbaeh about taking the coal
to the states to make coke of it shows
tlie character of the misrepesentation
which the C.I'.It. hinchmen are resorting to In order to bolster up a
poor and seflsh cause. Che weakness
of some of the Inventions is wonderful
but this one is simply absurd.
That a strong effort wili be made at
Kaslo at the meeting ofthe Associated
boards of trade to put through a resolution favorable to the plan of the
big railway compauy to secure for an
allied company the coal lands reserved
by the government is certian. It is
doubtful, however, if that body will
lend itself to plans so selfish. It may
adopt a resolution along the line of
recommending that the interests of
the people be properly safeguarded
and protected, bnt beyond this we do
not bblieve that anything will be
done. The Associated boards ot trade
is too respectable, too honest, too influential a body, to do anything that
wonld be discreditable and to aid the
C.P.R. in its attempted coal land grab
would not be to its credit.
OWNERSHIP VS.  RENTING.
Some interesting facts regarding
home ownership are revealed by the
United States census, says an exchange. The tiaures will surprise
many who have Philadelphia heralded
far and wide as the ''city of homes.''
As a matter of fact, only 21 familes of
each 100 in Philadelphia were home
owners, sligntly above one-half the
percentage in Detroit, Milwaukee and
Rooheeter, New York only showed six
families to tbe hundred owning their
homes, bnt Greater New York, with
its wonderful suburban expansion.
will make a much bettei showing.
Throughout the entire conntrv,Including both city and rural districts, it Is
found ��� disregarding fractions���that IS
families out of every 100 own tbe
homes where they reside. The highest
proportion of home owners is found
in the north central states, where 5S
families out of every 100 own their
own homes, ln all sections it is found
that the higher proportion of home
owner is in the country and thc lower
proportion in the cities. Of the 2$
cities possessing over 100,000 popula-
ion, Rochester stands at the head,
with 11 families in every 100 owning
their own homes. Detroit and Milwaukee come next, each with 42. St.
Paul and iiuffalo next, with 40 families to the 100 who pay taxes instead
of rent, and Cleveland follows one
point behind.
The ratio of liDtne owners to the
entire population of any'city is determine 1 largely by the condition of thc
wage-earner. The wealthy ami middle
classes naturally own their own
homes, but it requires more sacrifices
upon the part of tbe laboring man to
secure the title to his modest  cottage.
The sale of the Danish West Indies
by Denmark to the United States ^has
caused some of the papers thereto apparent? seriously speculate on the
nrice which Great ISritian would ask
fjr Canada. . This is an exhibition of
egotism and effrontery wbich is
almost appalling. The people of
Canada would object most strenuously
to being soldjhy Great llritain. but
there is not the slightest danger of the
Imperial autnorities entering into
such a bargain. The.discussion oi
the question by the American papers
is simply impndent.
Mr. David li. llogle has been appointed editor of the Victoria Daily
Colonist, to the place made vacant by
the resignation of C. U. Lugrin. Mr.
Rogie is a strong, graceful and
scholarly ^writer. ,well informed on
the politcs of the province and should
make the Colonist a readable paper.
For several years Mr.; Hogle lived in
the Kootenays and was connected with
the publication ot a number of papers,
besides this he engaged in mining
promotion and knows a great deal
about the vast mineral resources of
the inland empire. Under the circumstances it is very probable that he will
devote considerable attention to the
mining industry of the Kootenays and
Yale.
The bureau of provincial infoima-
ticn has issued a general review of
mining in Rritish Columbia and it
will be weleomed,by those interested
in mining. .This pamphlet will serve
to keep the public informed as to the
conditions of the mining industry
pendingjthe issuance of' theJAnnual
report~"of the minister of mines, which
is a large and important fpublicatiou
and deal with mining in detail. By
issuing these smaller publications the
provincial authorities give the people
early and; accurate ^information and
this meets with afoll measure of appreciation. The bureau of^provincial
information promises that other
bulletins on other subjects will be
forthcoming as fast as they can be
compiled and printed, the whole to
be comprised in a complete edition of
the Y'ear Book. Let the good work
go on.
Apprehension has been expressed in
some quarters that harm would result
from th..- production of too much gold.
Some have gone so far as to declare
that the metal would have to be
demonetized on account of tbe gieat
increase in its production. Gold has
increased at a rapid rate of late and
during tbe years lSOl-lSUS.the world's
production of gold averaged about
S1U3,000,000 per annum. In 1S95 it
jumped to $314,000,000. In is90 was
only 8202.200,000, and last year the
amount is estimated at 8265,500,000.
The Boer war and the consequent
shilling down of the mines of the
Rand has been the case of the falling
off of the precious metal sinre it commenced. The appioximate amount of
gold in the world on January 1, 1900,
according to the ieport of the director
of the United States mint was 84.S41,-
000,000, or 83.Go;per capita. The tota
per capita of gold silver and paper iu
money is. however, $3.79. 'It is evident from the small per capita of gold
in the world that the world's stock
could be doubled without any necessity for demonetizing it.
According to a compilation made by
the New York Journal of Commerce
the fire losses on this continent in
January, 190], were only $11,7.15,000,
while those of January, 1900, reached
$16,574,000. There were several quar-
tei-million fires in the United States
last month ; and two, at Manchester
and St, Louis, that approach'd halt a
million. The current month of February makes a lurid showing, in this
respect, so far. On tne 2nd came a
conflagration at Watcrbury, Connecticut, and on the 9th cne at Paterson. New Jersey, the aggregate loss
by which two gro.,t Hies is placed at
over seven millions. Twenty-six
blocks in Paterson were buried, containing probably r,00 buildings, and
four to five millions is perhaps not too
high an estimate to place upon the
value of property burned. In two
previous Pebrnarien, the fire loss was
$15,427,000 and $18,469,000 respectively.

The Rev. O. F. WELLS, o Villa Ridge,

tell you how thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I was a slave, chained
with putrid sore throat and asthma for ten
years. I despaired of ever being cured. 1

PRODUCTION OF BOOKS.
Judge to Have Privilege of Inspection
of Unon Minutes.
The application for an order to produce documents ln tbe case of the
Centre Star vs. Russlaud Miners'
union and other was heard buforo Mr.
Justice Maitin at Rossland on Tuesday, A. C. Gait appearing for tbe
plaintiff, and S. S. Taylor for the
defendants.
Tbe first two clauses of the application were decided in favor of the
plaintiff and the Miners' Union will
be required to furnish fuller affidavits.
No order could he made against the
Western Federation of Miners and tho
Blacksmiths and Helpers' union for
thc reason that these were not organisations within thu legal definition.
James Wilks was ordered to attend
for examination. The chief fight was
over the application to have the books
of tho Rossland Miners' union produced for Inspection. It was finally
decided that tbe solicitor ior tbe
defense should be allowed to put in
extracts from the minute book of the
union bearing on the questions at
issue, these to be verified by his affii-
davit, but in oase these were deemed
not sufficient, the judge is to inspect
the books and to make such extracts
from them as he deems pertinent to the
case.

AUTHOR AMD PHYSICIAN
Writes Interesting Tale
Thc author of "Under Palmetto and
Pine " " Norma Trist," " Four Years
on Wheels," eto., Dr. J. W. Carhart
of La Grange, Texas, in addition to
his literary efforts is a hard working
physician in general practice.
He writes interestingly of how his
freedom from heart trouble waB gained hy leaving oft ooffee and using
Postum in its place. "1 drank ooffee
in the ordinary form for many years;
nervous trouble Involving disturbance
of  the heart's action resulted.
On coming to Texas I fell Into the
habit of drinking ooffee after hard,
cold rides, in my praotice or when iu
camp or on the trail. My heart
trouble soon became exceedingly aggravating, resulting in frequent attacks of what was pronounced angina
pectoris, a severe agonizing pain over
the heart extending to the back and
sometimes down the left aim.
In some of these attacks but for the
timely administration of morphine
injected hypodermlcally I could have
survived but a short time.
At different times I abandoned tne
use of coffee, believing it the cause of
my troubles, and invariably lmprov
ed, but as I had nothing satisfactory
to take its place in the way of a
beverage I returned to its use.
The literature of Postum Cereal
Coffee came to my notice and I resolved to try it. The directions for
preparation were strictly followed and
I found it an agreeable, appetizing,
invigorating table beverage. I continued its use in my family for the
past year and a half or two years during which time I have never had an
attack of my old heart trouble, am
capable now at the age of 67 years
and do as much professional and
literary work as at any period of my
life. I can ondure physical exercise
without weariness but with zest and
relish, ad have gained In weight from
134 poumU to 165 pounds."
Tbe doctor further refers to the wide
spread prevalence uf heart trouble
from the usu uf coffee and tobacco,
and speaks ul the advantage gained
by patiuots when they leave off ooffee
and take Postum.
It must also bo added that the poison
of the uoffee does not affect the heart
in some patients but shows its work
in the stomach and bowels with one,
perhaps in the eyes with another, and
kidneys with another, and general
nervous prostration with another.
It is never possible to tell just
where the result of the poisoned nerve
centres will show forth. Tbere is but
one way to surely cure such cases and
tbat Is by insisting upon 1 earing off
coffee and using Postum in its plaee.
I'ostnm contains the elements for rebuilding tbe nerve cells and brain.
Albumen is furnished in a variety of
foods, but albumen cannot be made
into the soft, gray matter of tha brain
and nerve cells except by the action
of phosphate of potash upon it and
the system will not always tako u p
the ornde phosphate of potash, whereas,
it can he depended upon to take up
tbe delicate particles of that .element
when presented as Nature presents it
in food. It Is in both Postum Joffee
Hnd Grape-Nuts.
What Some Tourist Associations Have
Accomplished.
At a meeting of the Ottawa Tourist
association recently for election of
officers and tbe transact ion of other
business some interesting statistics
relating to the work of the St. John
organization were read. In St. John
the provincial government grunted
$1,000, the city council thu same
amount, and thu merchants and business men raised $1,000 by subscription. The tabulated work done in-
cuded the getting out and distributing
of 25,000 picture postcards during the
past year. The picture cards were
got up in the best of style, each one
having on it a photogravure of some
of the scenery or boating or summer
sport, besides this 25,000 booklets
containing picture and descriptive
matter were sent to all persons aud
places where it was thought they
would induce good results. The returns on this had been so satislactory
tbat far greater efforts are being put
forth this year. In the government
returns for the State of Maine it is set
forth that the ostimute of the money
spent in tbat state during the past
year by summer tourists had been
*10,000,000 In Maine the Tourist
association idea is carried out to perfection and tbe results have been commensurate. The picture postal cards
have heen found one of the best agents
in adveitising a place. Nearly everyone is willing to use them, and by
selling them at either cost price, or
slightly below, an im menBe number
of them are put in ciruulation.

SWORN TO SECRECY.
When Miss Stone Was Released She
Did Not Knoiv Where She Was.
Salonika, Feb. 26.--Miss Stono says
the brigands swore both ol their captives to absolute secrecy regarding any
information calculated to establish
thu identity of the brigands,tlie location of the place where they were con -
cealed, or other facts likely to compromise their captors. As a matter
of fact, the prisoners themselves are
very uncertain regarding many details
of their wanderings. They did not
know when they were released, in
what section of oountry they were.
An arrangement had been made to
release Miss Stone and her companion
near Seres, Macdonia, whore Dragoman Gnrgiulo and Mr. House were
waiting for them, but the brigands,
owing to timidity, declared it was too
difficult to carry out the plan and
brought their captiveB, after a hard
night's march, witnin one and a half
hours of Strumitza The two women
were left under the shelter of a tree
at 3.30 in the morning,February 23rd.
The bandits pointed ont the direction
of the village and ordered the captives
to report themselves to the village
elder, who on learning their identity
Would provide for them. The brigands
then turned back and disappeared
among the Hills.

trade. Mr. Ooodove reports that Rossland has made a rapid recovery from
the depression caused by the strike
and business has resumed some of its
old time swing. Tho business men
there, he said, anticipate as prosperous a year as they had in 1898 when
the Rosdand boom was in its hcydey
and money was plentiful and everyone
prosperous. All tho big mines aro
being operated and there is considerable development on tho smaller properties. Tlio Spitzee, he says, is turn

Typesetters.
Said to be Hard
on Operators.
The work of typesetting in a modern printing office is very exacting,
particularly if tie runs a linotype or
typesetting machine. It requires tho
closest attention and rapid and sympa
luetic action of both brain and hand.
This machine works much like a typewriter Such workers fed on ordinary
food give up because of nervous prostiation, somo in a short time,and some
are able to stand it longer.
One of these workers says: "I havo beon at the linotype threo yoars. It
has made a great Ohange in my onco robust health, Alunt three months ago,
after long expei'tlng it. I completely collapsed, from indigestion and extreme
nervousness. The daily physic I hud not dared to omit for years, now and
then, refused relief and a physician was onnsultcd.
"'Change of occupation and diet.' read tho prescription, 'advise eating
Grape-Nuts food twice daily.' I had often set up tho advertisements of the
Postum Cereal Co., but somehow printers nre apt to think advertisements are
not intended for them to make use uf. I coula not well change my occupation, bnt did change the diet.
"Since then have Used Grape-Nuts, both at breakfast and supper, daily.
The reltllt! are truly remarkable. The llrst perceptible change was in the
matter of digestion, 11 has beon six weeks since I have had to swalow an
aperient of any kind. At the beginning ol my experiment with Grape-Nuts
I   weighed VII pound*|   last evening 1 tipped the beam at 167 1-8.
"My nerves, which were completely shatleied three months ago, aro new
strong and steady, and I do not tire easily, thongh I go to bed an hour later
on an average than formerly, and have Increased my capacity at tho machine fully two columns of typo a day. I am convinced that Grape Nuts food
is tho food for poisons of a sedentary occupation, especially for thoso who
work with brsin in lieu of brawn." Chas. H. Eckhard, 177 N. Chambers
